We’re starting to think about next year and how things might develop. This is (to a certain extent) in tandem with the development of my Mum’s garden. She has someone coming to sort out part of her back garden next week, where she needs a new retaining wall to keep next door’s garden next door! We’re then thinking of asking the same firm to sort out our shed and greenhouse bases and any fencing that needs attention (and that is our responsibility).
Mum’s going to get a new greenhouse and we’ll be helping her get her gardens how she wants them – there’s a lot of hard landscaping to do at the front but she is getting someone in to do that, then there will be more room for plants.
At the moment there’s quite a bit of tidying up to do but with Christmas looming it’s hard to find a spare moment. I looked around our front garden today and thought how much needs pulling up or cutting back. It’s not going to happen this weekend, though!
